 Tranøy Fyr

Oppeid is the municipal centre of the borough of Hamarøy. Hamarøy is often called the "Pearl of Northern Norway". The name Hamarøy is naturally connected to author Knut Hamsun. From here he found the scenery and lifestyles described in the world famous litterature he created. The reason is obvious when travelling across Kråkmofjell and the Sagvassdalen valley spreads out before you with its seven glimmering lakes all in a row. Hamarøy a treasure to be shared. Kråkmotinden peak, with its distinct profile, keeps a vigilant eye on Kråkmo Farm where Knut Hamsun wrote "Segelfoss Town" and began writing "The Growth of the Soil".

Hamarøy is blessed with dramatically beautiful scenery. Towering mountains, forests and fertile farmland, skerries and islands, fjords and wide open sea. Here you can enjoy untouched wilderness and yet find all the services you need. We invite you to share our cultural offerings and hospitality, but first and foremost to make your own discoveries. Go for a walk along the shore, or climb to the top of a mountain! Enjoy the peace and quiet and the bright North Norwegian summer nights.

Take pleasure in the clear air and sparkling colours of autumn, or the multi-faceted blue tones of winter. Follow in the footsteps of Nobel Prize winning author, Knut Hamsun. The Hamsun Festival has already become a tradition in Hamarøy. There is a wealth of opportunity at your fingertips!

Regardless of the time of year you visit - with the mystical Midnight sun, a spectacular thunderstorm or the magical Northern Lights. The polar night occurs when the night lasts for more than 24 hours. This occurs only inside the polar circles.

Nesstraumen is the second strongest sea current in Norway after Saltstraumenn. Nesstraumen forms the entrance to a magnificent and unique inland sea with innumerable islets, skerries and beaches and a small part of the realm of Knut Hamsun.

Great surroundings for walking and a fantastic flora will meet you on your trip by the sea or in the hills where you can see the mountains in Lofoten.
